Group Tenting for Organized Groups

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is represented by this colored map.

Where Organized Groups Can Camp in Tents

This chart shows where organized groups can camp in tents in Pennsylvania State Parks. 


Need more room for your group to camp? Try an organized group tent camping area which are specifically made for large groups.

For a more sheltered experience try organized group cabin camps.

Organized group tenting areas in Pennsylvania state parks can be reserved 11 months in advance to  two days before arrival.

How do I make a reservation?

Call 888-PA-PARKS (888-727-2757), Monday to Saturday, 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM except on the Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day holidays.

Reservations can be made using MasterCard, VISA, American Express, and Discover credit cards, or personal, traveler’s, and cashier’s checks, or Pennsylvania State Parks Gift Card. To receive a confirmed reservation, full payment must be received by the Bureau within ten days of making the reservation.

Changes and Cancellations

Changes to a reservation must be made by calling the Pennsylvania State Parks Reservation Call Center at 888-PA-PARKS (888-727-2757), Monday through Saturday, 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. There is a $10 fee assessed for all changes made to a reservation, except adding nights to the reservation.

Cancellations can be made via the call center or web. Cancellations made up to the close of business seven days prior to your scheduled arrival date will incur a $10 cancellation fee per reservation. If you cancel six days or less prior to the arrival date, you will forfeit the first night’s fee or $75, whichever is the lesser amount.

A $10 fee per reservation is assessed for all changes made to your reservation, except for adding nights to the reservation.

If a reservation receives the weekly discounted rate, any change that results in shortening the stay, will cause the customer to lose the benefit of the weekly rate. A new daily rate will be calculated for the remaining dates, which will affect any amount refunded.

Please note, reservations made at the maximum window (11 months to the day), or with a departure date after the maximum booking window, are not permitted to move or cancel their reservation for 22 days. After 22 days, patrons can change or move their reservation for a $10 transfer fee.

Any cancellation or change on the day of arrival must be made through the state park.
